Yes, but I won't be devaststed if they go back to the old way. I'll still watch with the same enthusiasm. There is something to be said when an unknown played becomes a national hero. But that means no KHL, SEL, etc. either.
I'd like to see it, but I can understand Bettman's point about not getting the exposure for the game. It was ridiculous how many games got put on MSNBC and CNBC. Especially that first Canada/US game. Just crazy. I'd hope that they'd get more games on the flagship if they go next time.
The Chicago Wolves = 2008 Calder Cup Champions!
NO. We have the World Cup for the pros not in the POs.
This 2 wk break is a joke. Now it's TWO days from the trade deadline, we haven't played a game in 2 wks, ROFL!
Teams are fighting for the POs; for the Cup. NHL teams come first and foremost, it should be their focus from year round. Guy's not in the NHL can go play for their country. I've hated pros in the Olympics from the beginning.
